Frühe Hilfen für Familien – ein Projekt zur psychosozialen Prävention für junge Eltern in schwierigen Lebenslagen in Ulaanbaatar/Mongolei (2013-2017)
How can young mothers and fathers be supported during the critical phase of their lives when they become parents, if traditional learning and the activation of parenting skills via observation and action in the context of everyday life is no longer guaranteed, as is the case in changing societies?
The prevention program Das Baby verstehen (Understanding the Baby) developed by Manfred Cierpka and his team served as the basis for the project gesund - beschützt - geborgen (healthy – protected – secure). An explorative study in Mongolia examined the conditions for the transfer as well as the acceptance of the program by young parents in the capital Ulaanbaatar.
